Google Didn’t Scrub Hard Enough…

October 19, 2009

Obama from Kenya, archived report says
Revives worry about president’s eligibility for office


The report starts out, “Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack (sic) Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.”

The report continues to discuss the allegations against Ryan, Obama’s opponent in his race for the U.S. Senate, and his decision to drop out, virtually handing the Senate seat to the political newcomer.

The article is credited to the wire service Associated Press at the bottom of the page. However, the article could not be found either in the AP archives available to the public online or the archive on the newspaper’s website. WND telephone calls and e-mails to the newspaper did not generate a response.

At the Post & Email blog, writer John Charlton offered several explanations, including the suggestion references to Obama’s birth have been scrubbed.

He wrote that a search of Google for the issue produced unusual results.

“When you attempt to search for ‘Kenyan-born Obama’; results are missing; years prior to 2004 seem scrubbed; and when you click a link to an article in 2000, you get an article in 2004.

“Deliberate sabotage of their own news archive?” he wondered.

He said searching Google for the reference words “Kenyan-born U.S. Senator Obama hopeful…” came up with a 1981 New York times reference, but Obama is not in the article.

“There is no mention of Obama from 1981 to 2000; despite all his ‘work with the poor’ in Chicago,” Charlton continued.

The June 27, 2004, article from the Standard doesn’t appear.

A further link to PBS leads to a story about Obama’s Senate victory, another to USA Today talks about Obama’s father being Kenyan-born and another from 2004 does the same.

“Then, you would not believe it; but all the newspapers in the world, during the period from Jan. 1, 2005 to April 12, 2006, don’t make one mention of Obama! Not even one,” he said.

The bottom line, however, Charlton wrote, should not be what published reports have said, but what proof Obama can provide.

“If Obama cannot show documents which prove he is born in the USA; the mere fact that he has claimed to be born overseas and in the U.S.A.; first at one hospital in Hawaii and then at another; means that nothing he says in court, and no document presented by his campaign could be taken as prima facie evidence of anything.”

Obama, Mc Cain: Who would be America’s choice?
Article: Newspage Weekly

Barak Obama is a politician who grew up with differing ideas probably due to his background. Someone who believes in the ability to unite people around a politics of purposes, the Illinois Senator has been known for working with both Democrats and Republicans to help working families get ahead of creating programs like the state earned income tax credit. In three years, the said project provided over $100 million in tax cuts to families across the state. The Kenya-born Senator, who is being considered by some of his admirers as the “New Kennedy” also pushed through an expansion of early childhood education. In another development, after a number of inmates on death row were found innocent, he worked with law enforcement officials to require the videotaping of interrogations and confessions in all capital offence cases.
